Organic Madina Henna - 100g
Arabian weddings in the Gulf region are often hosted after a traditional and colourful event called a henna night, or ‘ghomra’ that often takes place in the bride’s family house. During this event, the bride’s hands and feet are beautifully adorned with henna art and she wears a traditional beaded and decorated gown accompanied by gold accessories, such as bangles, that are usually a gift for her from her fiance. In some countries and cities, such as Madina in Saudi Arabia, the henna party is a must, as it connects people to their roots and traditions. In this night, friends and family members give the bride valuable and expensive gifts from gold to precious stone jewellery, cosmetics and perfumes and they spend the night singing traditional songs, dancing and playing drums. Aside from this, henna has been used by the Arabs for thousands of years for many purposes, such as to dye and thicken hair, as a natural cure for headaches, to hasten the healing of wounds and burns and as a natural and nutritious treatment for hair growth. Henna from Madina, the second holiest city in Saudi Arabia, is considered by Arabs to be of the highest grade available in the market.
